Eveningwear brand Galvan London has opened its first international retail space, in New York’s Soho district.
The label said the new space combines office, workspace, showroom, archive and bridal atelier in a single ‘studio,’ and follows on from the launch of a simlar store in London’s Notting Hill last year.
Galvan said both studios offer local services, which include the ability to purchase current collections, pre-order from the new collection and place orders from its archive of previous collections.
Online purchases are delivered by a sales assistant, who does complimentary fittings in the customer’s home, including bringing different sizes for the customer to try. The assistant then takes garments away for alteration. Complimentary fittings at home include up to eight garments and the customer has no obligation to purchase.
Galvin’s New York studio is located at 355 West Broadway.
Established in 2014, Galvan’s stockists include MatchesFashion, Net-a-porter, Harvey Nichols and Selfridges. It also sells online at GalvanLondon.com.
